Stitch Fix Review – August 2013

  • Stitch Fix
  • Personal Stylist Service
  • $20 styling fee which will go toward item(s) purchased. Also offer monthly subscription service.

What? A regular person (that means not rich nor famous haha) like me can also have a personal stylist? For only 20 bucks?

Stitch Fix is a company that offers personal styling service. Here is how it works:

  1. Sign Up and Complete Your Style Profile. 
  2. Schedule a Stitch Fix. You pay a $20 styling fee up front, which serves as credit toward anything in your Stitch Fix shipment.
  3. Try it all on. Each item includes style cards with ideas and inspiration on how to wear it.
  4. Decide. Take 3 days to decide what you’ll keep. Pay for just what you want to keep, return the rest in our pre-paid mailing bag at any USPS mailbox. Keep all 5 items and you save 25% off the entire shipment.
  5. Check Out. Give Stitch Fix feedback on your shipment so they know what did and didn’t work for you.

My stylist’s name is Melanie. In my first Stitch Fix box, she picked a dress, a cardigan, two tops and a necklace for me. Everything was folded neatly in the box. There is also a note from Melanie with item details with prices.

Costa Blanca
Aimee Open Crochet Cardigan (white) | $78 (25% off = $58.50)

I love the styling card that comes with each item! The first one is an ivory color crochet cardigan. This is perfect for going into fall from summer.

I think this cute cardigan can go with everything. Jeans, dresses, or wear it with a belt would be cute, too. The crochet details are so pretty.

Peyton Striped Tiered Jersey Dress (blue) | $28 (25% off = $21)

One of my special request to my stylist is that I am trying to get pregnant right now. So I want clothes that I can continue wearing into pregnancy. I am so happy Melanie listened ot my request. This comfy jersey dress is perfect for my need! The elastic waistline is right under the chest. So in the future when my belly gets big, I can still wear it.

The dress is so soft and comfy. I can also add a belt and the whole outfit becomes more stylish.

Delcan Crochet Inset Floral Print Top (orange) | $58 (25% off = $43.50)

This orange floral top has 3/4 sleeves. The material is thin and soft. Perfect for late summer/early fall. Love the bright color. The crochet details at the collar and shoulder are beautiful.

This loose top also fits my request. I can still wear it with bigger belly. The 3/4 sleeves hide my chubby arms. And it’s very comfortable to wear.

Colibri Sheer Tab-Sleeve Blouse (green) | $48 (25% off = $36)

Such a vibrant and beauitful bright green! This sheer blouse needs to be paired with a camisole. The tab-sleeve means I can wear this blouse long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves. The cut is really nice.

I can leave it unbottoned, or buttoned. I can leav it out, or tuck in. I can wear it casual, or dress it up. Again, the loose fit is exactly what I requested.

Ovals & Gems Necklace (orange) | $32 (25% off = $24)

Last but not least, it is a coral color necklace. I wore this necklace with a lot of outfits in the pictures. It really goes with almost everything. I was surprised how good it looks with white, blue and green.


I LOVE IT!!!! I am super happy about my first Stitch Fix. I seriously love everything in the box. Their stylists (especially my stylist, Melanie) really paid attention to my needs. She picked out items that suits my need, my style, and also fits me (size-wise) perfectly.

I am seriously struggling on what to keep. If I don’t have to worry about money, I would definitely keep EVERYTHING. But since now I am staying at home with no income, I feel bad spending too much of Dr. P’s money (what a nice wife haha). Last night I showed Dr. P all the outfits. He actually said he loves everything and thinks I should keep them all! But I still would like to hear what all of you think.

Should I keep them all? Or what should I keep? What should go back?

  1. your stitch fix was the FIRST that I liked every single item in the box…It all seemed like the same style or same person…some boxes I have seen look like the stylist has a personality disorder. lol good luck getting pregnant…such a fun time!
